Sakura-Con 2016, My 2nd Year Experience; Day 1

 

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional photographer by any means. I understand that these pictures may not be up to par with everyone’s standards, but I do hope you enjoy them as much as I did. You can also click on the picture for a larger resolution.

This was the event I’ve been waiting all year long for! This past weekend was quite a busy one for me as I indulged myself in the pleasure of being surrounded by great cosplays, video games, and most importantly of all, ANIME! 😀 The weekend was filled with unique cosplays left and right so I’ve got plenty of pictures for you folks to look at. But this wouldn’t be too much of a blog post (especially a welcome back one) if I didn’t fill you guys in on the festivities that happened right? Be sure to continue reading if you wanna see more!

Dragon Fest 2015

PSX_20150714_200321[1]

This whole year has been a year of new experiences for me. I used to dread going to crowd places because of the obvious, lines, foot traffic, and just being in crowds in general. But for some reason subconsciously I decided that this year will be the year that I try new things, and no, that wasn’t my new years resolution. I’m glad as hell that I did though because I can say that this year has been going pleasantly well for me. Be sure to hit the jump and check out my first-timer experience at this street festival!  Continue reading

Cosplay Sunday: SarahChaco

Happy Sunday everyone! Now I want to break down what Cosplay Sunday is about. This type of post I like doing (even if it is my first post) because it gives me a chance to know how a person got involved with the Otaku lifestyle. Whether it started from video games, to watching their first anime, or even listening to opening anime themes for hours on end, it’s still a pleasure getting to know them on a personal level. As I stated before in my “What’s your purpose?” post I’m here to share stories. Not all of us are famous cosplayers and not all of us cosplay as popular characters. So I’m here to do just that, give everyone some exposure to the light. Continue reading

What’s your purpose?

I was asked a question today about my blog that really made me think. The question was “What other purpose do you serve other than sharing the otaku lifestyle?” For a moment I really had to ponder the thought and really dig down deep inside of me to figure out why else I started this blog.

To tell you the truth, although I haven’t gotten much leads on interviews yet, I’ve always been interested in meeting new people who share the same interests as I do and find out their stories. What I plan to do is have a photoshoot + interview with local cosplayers and find out what got them into anime, what they love most about the community, how they see the lifestyle evolving in the future, and so forth. Everyone has a different story that is meant to, and should be heard, and that’s why I’m here, to share our stories.

If you’re a cosplayer in the Seattle area and have a story you would like to be heard leave a comment or shoot me an email and lets get the ball rolling!
